A commercial airliner flew past the location where North Korea’s recent intercontinental ballistic missile would land in the Sea of Japan less than 10 minutes later, according to a U.S. official.
Flight data from the time of the ICBM’s landing on Friday indicates that the aircraft that was potentially in danger was Air France flight 293, traveling from Tokyo to Paris with 323 people on board.
The plane’s flight path shows the Boeing 777 traveling west of Hokkaido as the North Korean ICBM was airborne.
The Japanese Defense Ministry said the ICBM landed about 93 miles northwest of Okushiri Island.
